welcome to our to international law from moscow this morning you with me to bang with say it's good to have you with us terrorists in northern iraq have seized a nuclear materials that could be smuggled out of the country and used to make weapons of mass destruction that's according to an official iraqi letter to the you went up to him by reuters it comes as jihad as a ball soaring their grip on territories in syria and iraq which they calling the islamic state of france has the latest. what we've learned is that in a letter to the united nations iraq announced insurgents have seized nuclear materials from the university according to iraq's u.n. ambassador mohammed al hakim at least forty kilograms of uranium compounds were stored in the university said the materials obtained can be used in manufacturing
weapons of mass destruction and warned they could easily be smuggled out of iraq a u.s. government official told reuters news agency the materials are not believed to be enriched uranium and therefore make it difficult to make into a weapon it's also been revealed that islamic state the militants the group formerly known as isis captured a facility on june eleventh thirty five miles southwest of baghdad which was once offered by saddam hussein's regime and is believed to contain two thousand five hundred degraded rockets filled with potentially deadly sarin and mustard gas and u.s. officials have downplayed the risk claiming the materials are too old to be useful however given the instability within the country and its proximity to syria this is still a very huge worry. as lindsey mentioned the villagers have made significant gains in recent weeks as seizing entire all smiles they've already paraded columns of tanks and even a scud ballistic missile the chemical side isis took in iraq contains
a number of dead the agents including seven finite and mustard gas now the jihad is have a new can materials which could be used to make a bomb a u.s. congressional a bus a while and fire as a says washington is downplaying the crisis. it is a very serious development regardless of how you know weaponized this material could be now of course in washington going to be a debate about is this really propaganda from the iraqi government or is this real no matter what if this material has really been taken by crisis over any others you have it's actually it's not just about the material it's about what can this organization use this material through or it is not necessarily nuclear material but it dirty bomb could be the outcome so i think that the next few days the united states government those executive and the congress are going to focus on this issue but at the same and they're going to try to downplay it because of the seriousness of it and they don't want to create a political crisis before they make sure of what this material is a u.s.
congressional and to terrorism adviser walid phares that they stay with r.t. for the latest on this developing story. and later is a u.s. spy scandal in german name has prompted outrage among politicians with a second government employee now suspected of working for the prying allen a member of the social democratic party said that it is a degrading spectacle to watch a u.s. spies being exposed on a weekly basis the defense minister stated that the case has shaken confidence in the united states and the german member of the european parliament called the incident deeply shocking which caused a deep loss of trust that this isn't the first time that american intelligence has been called snooping on its allies let's take a look back at the scandal now the full scale of the snooping came to light last june the agency accessed up to a half
a billion german data connections every month and a month later it was real that german intelligence cooperated with the n.s.a. using the agency's infamous x. keyscore software and in october an international scandal erupted as it was revealed on the cell phone of the german chancellor angela merkel have been tapped at the end of the yab it becomes clear that the british intelligence agency was also dropping on german targets in february this year german media reported the n.s.a. had to the then chancellor shooters phone calls in the run up to his two thousand and three us led invasion of iraq often publishes william and hall believes that the us isn't going to stop spying on its allies any time soon. obama administration is cruelly difficult. downscaling any of its history project to the european union politicians need a member stations no matter what pretty words are effective these are the average
germans to really. the affection for the united states that the majority of germans during the time of the nearly in the sixty's and so forth so that has pretty much been spent now the n.s.a. snowden affair. did a lot of damage but now these new scout bills are. making it a major major question for any government to try to defend at all costs the special relationship with washington. the n.s.a. doesn't spy on only foreign citizens the latest batch of edward snowden's revelations that claim the agency has been targeting prominent muslim americans even though there is no evidence any of them are connected to terrorism. reports on their reaction to the surveillance. in the wake of this latest government spying
revelation the american civil liberties union has announced that a coalition of forty five civil and human rights organizations have written to u.s. president barack obama demanding a full public accounting of these latest surveillance crop this is in question now according to the intercept the five american muslim citizens that had their e-mails monitored by the n.s.a. and the f.b.i. including a records university professor who is also president of the american iranian council an attorney who represents clients in terrorism related cases the executive director of care of the largest muslim civil rights organization in america the national chairman of the american muslim alliance which supports muslim political candidates and a long time republican party operative who formerly served as a lawyer for the department of homeland security none of the men have been charged with a crime in connection to the apparently monitoring the still kill one of the five
americans targeted tells our team he has no idea what would leave the n.s.a. or f.b.i. to think that he's someone that they should put under surveillance especially given his resume served in the united states navy worked in the bush administration at home a security. clearances so. i think the biggest reaction that i have is i have no idea what i have done what in my background would lead them to surveil or i mean i am a muslim and i did work in. addition levels in the government that's about the only thing i could think of i just can't think of anything else the u.s. office of the director of national intelligence and department of justice issued a joint statement calling the intercepts allegations entirely false insisting that no he was person can be the subject of surveillance based solely on first amendment activities and any aleck. tronic surveillance unless it's an emergency must be approved by the foreign intelligence surveillance court when greenwald who broke
the story with fellow journalist mortaza hussein says this is one of the most important revelations to come from the snowden leaks because it puts a face to the n.s.a. surveillance overreach it also apparently shows that domestic spying abuses are targeting minorities and activists for simply exercising their basic constitutional rights arena or not r.t. new york. israel's vowing to intensify it says shelling of gaza that's despite at least seventy five palestinians being killed inside being clave over the past two days but. some of the work. has never won them a look. when i look in government that's a mental. note that the group that it was was over was.
a. big deal but despite the bloodshed israel's leadership is mulling a ground offensive the united nations has warned the situation is dangerously close to a full blown war our correspondent put us to reports from one southern israeli town near the border with gaza. half of the people who have been killed in israeli bombardments are women and children gaza officials also say that most of the homes that have been destroyed by the israeli aerial strikes do not belong to him last minute and as indeed the israelis claim now this comes as israel prepares for cost tens of israeli would serve troops have been called up later today the united
nations security council is scheduled to hold emergency talks but certainly here where i am i'm in the southern israeli town of ashkelon which is not far from the israel gaza border you do not get a sense that any kind of diplomatic move is on the way the mood is extremely tense here in southern israel you constantly hear the red alert siren which gives people less than twenty seconds of same should be to get to a shelter or to some place of safety before a rocket strikes the panic is not only here in the south of israel it is also now in the center and even in the north there have been a long range missiles fired at israel reaching as far as one hundred and forty kilometers into the country the shelters have been opened throughout israel when people particularly here have been ordered to remain near a shelter and if possible not even to leave their homes at the same time i do want to say that as we look across the border into gaza you can see israeli warplanes constantly dropping a deadly cargo they've also been dropping leaflets urging gaza residents to reveal
the hiding places of hamas militants but certainly throughout the course of the day there isn't an hour that goes past when you do not hear loud explosions coming from across inside gaza. and we earlier talked to activists marie mario franson from the movement for international solidarity he believes israel is treating palestinians just like it always has. it continues like this escalating i think we have to prepare for the worst it's just a continuation of the occupation that's the fault of tens of years on the grounds of the blockade of gaza still the checkpoints are still children get killed unaddressed the hegel are already in the occupied territories but i think it's nothing new what are the numbers all for about a state in the children in the state prisons drop to seven hundred. foot every day child killed there are fifty palestinian children killed the cell feels no pressure to change what they are doing now and so they try to hit as hard as it ghana the
people in gaza. on the way of the many faces all the london. kids are playing with white kids black kids with black kids middle class. and here we were told we will as the british capital is actually not the multiethnic melting pot that some make it out to be will be right that. the interview. a little over.
the stories we cover here you're not going to hear any right that are fixed or the ads for headlines same time there's a reason they don't want you to know about it ever want to tell friends that you should be completely outraged now let's break the set. civilian lives tested to the limits in eastern ukraine as government forces laid siege to the region's biggest city which is behind this attack young children become the victim of israel's expanding and brutal offensive against palestinian territories being killed in the gaza strip german outrage it is how long it's been in authorities moving on yes or no but and i say double agent. what are the media turns a blind eye to you get on oxy. thanks for staying with us there is an ukrainian cities and lugansk being so wrong to top the president. approved a plan for
a military assault on the resistance hop's other cities have been at the strongholds of the anti-government movement in the east and the capitals of a self-proclaimed republics and these are the people who've been getting from the region apparently showing ukrainian war machines underage today in baffled thirteen spoke of them have been enduring overnight air raids the most recent attacks have left up to three people dead three i mean for national is it for us. today again we walk up from very loud songs of tillery we are in the city center and the shelling was so close that we were able to hear the launch of the shells and we were also hearing how they were lending the government forces continue to shell the ukrainian army is positions in the outskirts of the city with the country's military firing back it happens very often that shells land in quite unexpected places in the city center and many residents have already fled the city and people continue to leave
people were terrified by promises from kiev to surround the city's often ask the gods and fears were rising that it could become useless beyond them a tourist to the centers of the operation for months where clashes were very fierce and very deadly but lugansk is a very big city with a population of more than four hundred thousand people while deniece his home to one million people and concerns were rising the consequences of such strategy also will be bigger and. flavia lies in ruins the view of a team of international monitors who recently visited the city the army had been besieging and pounding a slug with shells for months and well here's the ashes have been backed by the us questions being increasingly also in europe over the rising number of civilian casualties among those concerned as marine le pen the lead off france's national front party you know to be told that we are closely watching the situation in
ukraine because nobody talks about it the truth is that civilians are being massacred and this doesn't concern me here this is outrageous stories of children into school mr khan to put an end to this killings the best way to stop this is to get all the signs around to go shooting and russia's role conj be undermined but treaty moscow with contempt since the beginning of the conflict has closed the door to a diplomatic solution. ever since barbara's crew in kiev ukraine has been firmly in the headlines over conflicts in the field and the battle over gas supplies but we're going to washington has opened a whole new way to cash in on the changes energetic and explain for some top u.s. officials ukraine is not just about politics it's about business for family and friends but one connection leads to another and the business is now finding its way into the u.s. congress. a week after vice president joe biden's son joined the board of ukraine's
largest gas producer secretary of state john kerry's formas senate chief of staff signed on to lobby congress on behalf of that same ukrainian energy company another gentleman from team kerry joined the von archer who was once john kerry's advisor and been learning his presidential campaign these people are no strangers to each other divonne archer and joe biden's son worked as business partners with john kerry's son in law christopher heintz oh yes and buddhism of their new employer is controlled by. former ukrainian government minister all these sons and friends of u.s. officials say they're on their own that they're disconnected from the decision makers in washington but of course nobody can stop them from benefiting from the policies adopted in the buildings around here members of congress are already writing letters saskin to provide us funding for ukraine's domestic energy production here is one of the senators. i think if we are going to be helping them with new
technologies and we should we should have a telescope time frame that we create for doubling of natural gas production inside of ukraine and we should set those goals set benchmarks and then let's meet them and help us make sense of this house of cards where one connection leads to another where it's all business and it's all personal here's craik. it's not just about lobbying for this one particular firm in ukraine right a u.s. state department spokesperson told congress this tuesday that ukraine's entire gas supply and production system is corrupt and needs fixing and the u.s. of course can help and one can only wonder what u.s. companies and what individuals would benefit from that fixing what do you think you know well we don't have to wonder. what we've seen is a scandal here we're. well connected relatives cronies for.
very influential officials are already on board and the point where i mean there's some to what happened after a rare one week there were all kinds of conferences i don't know americans and american companies could make money out of the situation buying influence in washington is not called corruption in america it's called tapping into new opportunities in washington i'm going to check on. where street cars are mostly like these still roving around in russian streets but gunter isn't quite the champion of modern public transport but how do you look at what happens when one of russia's top tank manufacturers ways then check out what its brainchild of the so-called bad tram looks like from both inside and out. of the online and prominent canadian ecologists she wants decided to drop out of a greenpeace has had another change of heart he says global warming is just a fantasy and one is of a global cooling. right to see.
her street. and i think the jury. on our reporters were very. instrumental. in the. rise let's take a look at what's going on around the world this hour six people including four children have been killed and one more wounded in a shooting in houston taxes go to the local authorities a man open final suburban house and then attempted to feed the scene but was intercepted and cornered by the police five people died on the spot and one child was taken to hospital however doctors when able to save him the sole survivor of the deadly domestic dispute has identified the shooter. greece has been
hit by a twenty four hour strike as public sector workers protesting against austerity measures including of the cent reduction to salaries and pensions any of the country's facilities have been disrupted and several parts of the country are facing helicopters the government has asked the high court to move will strike in legal and abuse of. london's massive population may be diverse but the multicultural melting pot is not working that's according to a new report which points to barriers between the city's ethnic communities artie's political report. politicians celebrate it sociologists lord it and londoners well they take it for granted the british capital is so multicultural it is the first city in the u.k. where white british people have become a minority over a third of london's residents were born outside of the u.k. and a third of foreigners over three hundred languages are spoken on the streets of the
city and if you tried we could probably track down representatives of every race religion culture and nation but here's the thing according to a new report by the social integration commission think tank london may be diverse but people are sticking to their own kind of capital is the place in britain where they make communities makes the least we do think of london as being a melting pot we do think of it as being the most diverse part of the country diversity does not automatically lead to integration when we look at a school playground and we see that white kids are playing with white kids black kids with black kids middle class on their own working class on the road i think is a gut reaction that's that most of us would say that that is a bad thing that we want some kind of mixing better than that there's a growing trend for white britons to leave the capital for other areas prompting concerns the city could be sleepwalking into ghetto like segregation is probably an
element here in london where people living busy lives commuting long distances so their free time in london is probably less than is elsewhere in the country and then where they're choosing to spend that free time is with people who look to a greater or lesser extent like them this isn't about saying hello to people on the boards this is about a little bit further having a conversation on the books so it's a step further from diversity in toleration into something a little bit deeper and that's where we see those divides coming a little bit clearer and those dividing lines could lead to greater fragmentation right. that integration. up to the brink could washington's monetary policy to get the less i mentioned crisis wind out in us.
we never saw that coming. we had no idea our children were gay. i would actually just at night pray to god you know me normal. they said you're a homo you're a homo and from that day in first grade i swear my life changed forever i became like the ridicule i don't think it stops still to this day. well alabama and texas instructs school teachers to tell pupils young people that homosexuality is not an acceptable lifestyle and also instructs them to say that homosexual sex in private is a crime in those states if the church was going to fire me that's what they had to do what i was going to do this way.
this is what we do we kill people and break things. we can see something is simple as people playing soccer game you can see individual players and you can see the ball. you can only see is facial expression you can see is down to open crying out. maybe cursed us or maybe he asked. for forgiveness for. there must be near a certain. but no civilians will be killed or injured.
this is about making the business survive. the. corporations don't love your parishioners told kate corporations have no feeling. corporations don't care about you or me corporations or occur book profit. people come to untouched for sins and leave massive bleeps for the sake come on. we're not going to quit we will not stop until it is done what is more precious music more moon. it was fake and very hard to take out. once again on here is a plan by adam that had sex with
